Success for Tupton at the Derbyshire Schools' Sports Awards


We are celebrating after a triumphant win at the Derbyshire Schools’ Sports Awards, taking home not one but two trophies.

Held at The County Ground in Derby on Tuesday 1 October, the evening recognised students who have achieved county, regional, national or international success in school sport plus also celebrated the Derbyshire School Games Championships in which Tupton took home Gold.

The championships coordinate and provide a consistent offer of inter school competition across the county for primary, secondary and special schools as well as recognising the top performing schools in the Level 3 County Finals.

Tupton Hall School, part of the North East Derbyshire School Sport Partnership, was victorious in the finals and was awarded not only Gold in the Individual School Games Plus Championship but also the Secondary School Championship.

Head of Physical Education, Carl Sinclair accepted the awards on the night. Carl said “as a Specialist Sports college, Tupton is very much focused on ensuring every student is given the opportunity to reach their full potential in sports. It’s through the students hard work and dedication that they have been awarded such a fantastic achievement.”

The school reached 8 Level 3 County Finals in the Secondary Championship and 4 Level 3 County Finals in the Competition Plus Championship. Some of the sporting highlights include Y8 boys achieving 1st place and girls 2nd in the Sportshall Athletics final. Y7 students reached 1st place in the Quadkids Athletics final and 3rd place for Y9 students in the Mixed Rounders tournament.
